Located at 2130 Broadway (between 74th and 75th Streets) in Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Beacon Bar is to the right of the lobby of the Beacon Hotel. During our visit at happy hour, the space had a laid back, but upscale feel to it. We did spot not-in-use velvet ropes near the entrance, so later at night, Beacon Bar probably plays the ‘velvet rope’ game, which is a bit rare for this part of town. Aside from the physical bar, the space is filled with mostly two-seat tables and lounge-style seating. Three draught beers and another dozen bottled beers are offered; wine and cocktails are also available.
